Stein, the author of one of my favorite Vampire series ever is here answering my q’s and she’s also giving away some cool prizes, including a SIGNED copy of the newest book in the Anna Strong series, Chosen!

You can check out my review of the book HERE!

Giveaway deets are at the bottom of the post, Enjoy!


Jeanne Stein

When did you first start writing?

I’ve been writing for a long time. I began writing seriously about fifteen years ago. My husband and I moved to Denver from San Diego and I had some time on my hands. I attended a local conference, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold, and connected with a half-dozen people who became the nucleus of my first real critique group. Through them and with them, I learned the craft of writing. We’re still together, all still writing, still good friends and still serious about our craft.

n194965 Have you always enjoyed Fantasy?

I’ve always enjoyed the vampire genre.

Why writing Urban Fantasy?

I was inspired by Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel stories.  All those spooky supernatural beings operating right here in our world. Creepier things are so much creepier when set against the backdrop of everyday life. It’s our world with a twist.

Were there any Books, Movies or Writers that have inspired you?

Buffy and Angel. Bram Stoker, Anne Rice, Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris. The Underworld movies. The first novel, though, was Ira Levin’s Rosemary’a Baby. Urban Fantasy before the term was coined.

What is your favorite subject in the Urban Fantasy Realm?


I have to say that I love Frey and I think he and Anna would be amazing together, can we expect that relationship to change anytime soon?Jeanne Stein - Blood Drive 2

Funny you should mention that. The next book in the series, Crossroads, Anna and Frey take a road trip that changes both their lives…and that’s
all I’m going to say about that!!


Favorite Paranormal themed Movie? Let the Right One In

Favorite Paranormal themed TV Show? Currently, True Blood.

Favorite Paranormal themed Book? Couldn’t possibly choose one.

Favorite Author?  Ditto.

Favorite one of your Books? The one I’m working on now!

n225675Who is your favorite of your own characters?

Anna, because she’s strong and loyal and risks everything for what’s right.

Which was the hardest to write?

Probably the first book, The Becoming, because of the violence of Anna’s turning.

What would you be if not a writer?

I can’t imagine. I’ve done a lot of things, but by far, writing is the best job I’ve ever had. It’s also the hardest. I hope to continue until they pry my cold, dead fingers off the keyboard!

If you Could be a Paranormal Being, Who would you be?

A vampire, of course.

Quickies:  (loved these, btw)

Coffee or Tea?  Coffeelegacy comp.indd
Up or Down? Up
Virtual or Real? Real
Right or Left? Right
Day or Night? Day
Here or There? Here
Sooner or Later? Sooner
Light or Dark? Light AND Dark
Fast or Slow? Fast
Vampires or Shifters? Vampires
Angels or Demons? Demons
Reading or Writing? Writing

What is your favorite part of the writing process?

The beginning because it’s the start of an adventure—for both myself and Anna.

jeanne_stein-retribution What is your least favorite part?

The middle.

The Anna Strong Series in your own words?

The story of a modern vampire’s quest for her place in the mortal world.

Any plans for more Books in the series?

I’ve finished the seventh and contracted for the eighth, so yes.

What is coming up next for you?

DragonCon, the launch of Chosen, signings, beginning the eighth Anna adventure.

What are you working on right now?jeanne_stein-chosenx600

This summer I finished a novella, Cloud City, to be included in an anthology called Hexed out next year. I’m also working on a non-fiction piece for Whedonistas, a collection of articles written by women fans of Joss Whedon. Next, I’ll get to work on Anna.

Do you have any advice or tip to those like me that want to become a published Author someday?

Write everyday. Enjoy the process and write the book of your heart. Most importantly, never give up.

Anything you would like to say to your fans out there?

Anna wouldn’t be without you. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am.  Thank you so much for being here. It’s my pleasure. Anna and I thank you.

    This is one of the things I love about this series, and I normally don't go for vamp books. Very few. Plus, I just love the covers! So unique and beautiful!

    I love Anna, although I haven't read any of her adventures in a while. The Becoming was one of the first Urban Fantasy novels I read after stumbling across the genre with Dead After Dark (Charlaine Harris) and Wicked Game (Jeri Smith-Ready. I definitely need to catch up though, because I've only read through book 3.
